    "Reading this is almost as good as watching a movie. It's such a vivid book that you get sucked in right from the start. One of my favorite urban fantasy series."

    "More Than This is an odd story in that it takes a boy who was dead, crashed against the rocks on a beach and we find him in a new world, alive and breathing. It is also well written and enjoyable. It does have a bit of The Matrix to it, so fans of it might enjoy it as well. "

    "This book is great for any Matrix fan (we have a few of that in our home!). It's inventive, quirky, interesting, engaging. Just a lot of fun. One of my teens (not always the most 'natural' of readers) is going through the whole series. I highly recommend this one. "

    "I didn't really enjoy this Matrix inspired book. It was a little too off beat for me. The story didn't seem to make sense sometimes."

    "There are a lot of reviews panning this manga due to it censoring a certain scene. As much as I hate censorship, I can understand why the publisher chose to do so in this case. The last thing the publisher wants is to get put in the news for the content while the new GITS movie just came out. My personal opinion is they would actually be better off with some controversy since that brings more attention (and sales as a byproduct). Shirow himself stated he wanted the scene removed but I think that was just done to make the content more accessible and sell-able. Aside from the censorship, I have found numerous grammar errors throughout the manga. It's not like they're just spelling mistakes, some of them are bad enough to where you have to actually stop and try to decipher what they mean. These mistakes are very easy to see, so the publisher obviously didn't have someone do any proofreading. This cannot be explained in any way other than pure laziness on their part."

    "This book is fantastic, funny, smart science fiction. I think it depends what Matrix fans loved that series for, but I believe anyone into the science fiction genre will enjoy this book but is definitely more about science than flashy action."

    "If you are going to watch scif-fi movies and TV series, you need to read the original books that started it all. H.G. Wells' classic is a must-read for sci-fi fans."

    "Ray Bradbury has written a number of classics, and The Martian Chronicles is no disappointment on that front. It's a collection of shorter stories that are all part of a greater whole, and they comprise three acts that paint an incredible science fiction scene of how life on Mars would really be. The authors picture of the alien world is stunningly advanced for having been written so long ago, and it's an interesting predecessor to stories like The Matrix. I consider it a must-read for any fans of sci-fi."
